Test Your Korean – Level 4 Dialogue in 100% Korean

Much (more), Much (less) / 훨씬

In Level 2 Lesson 21 and Level 2 Lesson 29, we looked at how to say “more” and also how to say that something is “more + adjective + than something else”. In this lesson, we are looking at how to say “much more + adjective + than something”.

In Level 2 Lesson 21 and Level 2 Lesson 29, we looked at how to say “more” and also how to say that something is “more + adjective + than something else”. In this lesson, we will look at how to say “much more + adjective + than something.”


Although the Korean word for “much” (adverb) is 많이, in this case, you need to use a different word: 훨씬.


훨씬 = much (more), far (more), etc


Ex)

멋있다 = to be cool; to be stylish

더 멋있다 = to be cooler; to be more stylish

훨씬 더 멋있다 = to be much cooler; to be much more stylish


Sample sentences

1. 이게 훨씬 더 좋아요. 

= This is much better.


2. 서울에서 도쿄까지보다, 서울에서 뉴욕까지가 훨씬 더 멀어요. 

= From Seoul to New York is much farther away than from Seoul to Tokyo.


3. 일본어보다 한국어가 훨씬 더 쉬워요. 

= Korean is much easier than Japanese.

= 한국어가 일본어보다 훨씬 더 쉬워요.

** Go back to Level 3 Lesson 11 to review on the “ㅂ irregular”



훨씬 is the “much” in the phrase “much more,” but when you use 훨씬, people will already know that you are making a comparison. Therefore, sometimes (only) when you want to say “much more + adjective/adverb,” you can drop the word 더 from 훨씬 더.

** You cannot drop 덜 from 훨씬 덜, which means “much less + adjective/adverb”.


Ex)

훨씬 더 좋아요. = 훨씬 좋아요.

훨씬 더 재미있어요. = 훨씬 재미있어요.


Examples of using 훨씬 with 덜.

** Go back to Level 4 Lesson 19 if you want to review on 덜.


덜 = less


비싸다 = to be expensive

덜 비싸다 = to be less expensive

훨씬 덜 비싸다 = to be much less expensive


가깝다 = to be near

덜 가깝다 = to be less near

훨씬 덜 가깝다 = to be much less near

In Level 2 Lesson 21 and Level 2 Lesson 29, we looked at how to say “more” and also how to say that something is “more + adjective + than something else”. In this lesson, we are looking at how to say “much more + adjective + than something”.
